Changing lives and creating healthy homes

Your in-kind donations help us create a safe, comfortable community for women experiencing homelessness across Los Angeles. **Please contact us to arrange a contactless drop off. Due to limited staff on-site availability, we cannot accept unscheduled deliveries.**

GOODS

For the health and safety of our community, DWC is limiting donations to cleaning supplies, PPE, items from our Emergency Preparedness Amazon Wishlist, and Snack Packs, Toiletry Kits, and Clean Home Kits until further notice. As we rely on your support for the success of our programs, we hope you will consider donating in the future.

Our current needs include: 

  • Gift cards to DTLA stores like Food 4 Less, CVS, Ralph’s, and Target, which allow women overcoming homelessness to shop for the items they need most.
  • Emergency preparedness supplies, including cleaning products, hand soap and sanitizer, non-perishable foods, bottled water, and paper goods. Please also see our guidelines for building Snack Packs, Toiletry Kits, and Clean Home Kits to help support our community.

Items can be mailed to: 
Downtown Women’s Center
Attn: Development
442 S. San Pedro Street
Los Angeles, CA 90013
